That takes care of login but not periods.  That is, users log in but 
don't have to log out at any set time (or ever).  It can be used to set 
access periods for other services, but I don't see how to restrict 
internet access that way.

Googling I see [1] which points to [2] which suggests using cron to 
force a logout, and various timekpr, with a fork under development[3].
